We just called in here while on a day trip to Rhodes Town from Turkey. It is tastefully decoeated by vine leaves making it quite cool our of the searing sun. The food was lovely as was the service and ambiance. I'm really picky, but I would recomend this restaurant

The main attraction is, of course, Socrates' Tree. It's actually a 2000+ years old living tree under which Socrates himself taught students on medical sciences. Simply amazing. They make a remarkable effort to keep the tree alive and it's beautiful.

Tucked away we stumbled hot and weary into a veritable oasis. Tinkling waterfall, pomegranate trees in fruit, lots of shade, a bouzouki playing quietly in the background, ice cold beers - heaven!

There are also snack available. Personally, we have ordered club sandwich and got plate of two small toasts (bread, piece of... More
